My Own Grand Tour

August 10, 2011

I’m going abroad, departing on a treasure hunt in less than a week!

Although my destinations are further north than the traditional Grand Tour, nonetheless there is plenty for me to explore. However, I would love some input into suggested museums, particularly smaller or private ones in Prague, Vienna, Hamburg and Berlin. Do you know any that you would recommend?

The Victoria & Albert Museum London. I'm hoping to see some of Dame Joan Evans' collection there.

Also, and most importantly, can you recommend any antique markets, shops and dealers that might be off the beaten track?

I am definitely visiting Gray’s Antiques and Alfies Antiques in London, not to mention the V&A and British Museum – it would be a travesty not too.

So, please comment or contact me with any suggestions for London, Vienna, Prague, Hamburg and Berlin. If my entree into the virtual world proves to be stable and functioning I will do my utmost to keep you posted of adventures and finds.

I promise to write!
